Lemon Thyme-Tinged Corn Saute

From: EatingWell

Fresh corn on the cob is wonderful, but fresh corn off the cob is a real treat too. Your reward for spending a few pleasant minutes cutting kernels off the cob is a sweet and flavorful corn saute brightened with diced red peppers, thyme and a lift of lemon--a subtle, delicious vegetable side dish that goes splendidly with crab cakes.

Servings: 6 servings, about 2/3 cup each
Prep: 35 mins

5-7 ears  fresh corn, husked
1 tablespoon  extra-virgin olive oil
2   scallions, thinly sliced
1   small red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 small stalk  celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons  water
1 tablespoon  butter
1 teaspoon  fresh lemon thyme, or thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon  freshly grated lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon  salt
1. Remove as much silk as possible from the corn and then, using a sharp chef's knife, cut the kernels off the cob. You want to end up with 3 to 3 1/2 cups corn. You may not need all the corn if the ears are large. Set aside.
2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet or saute pan over medium-low heat. Stir in scallions, bell pepper and celery. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened but not browned, about 5 minutes.
3. Add the reserved corn and water to the pan. Cover and cook, stirring often, until the corn is tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Add butter and stir until it has melted. Stir in the thyme, lemon zest and salt. Remove the pan from the heat, cover and let sit for several minutes before serving.
